Blessings on this day of gratitude

I searched for twenty minutes or more for an interesting painting with a harvest theme, hoping to find a Jacobshagen, instead seeing a lot of Bruegel (which is fine) but not much else that intrigued me enough to share this Thanksgiving Day. I liked the surreality of Julie Lamons’ Hay Bales, but decided on a little work by Hot Springs artist Linda Shearer, who painted this with a traditional Chinese brush technique.

Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
